Many of you may be feeling like the ball in a pinball machine in recent days (and ongoing). If it's not your own emotions being stirred and shaken, you may be feeling the whitewash of someone else's 'waves'.
Having trouble sleeping? Do you constantly feel like you’ve had ten cups of coffee and are running on adrenalin lately? Is your tiredness level set to Extreme Exhaustion but nothing is helping because even while you try to rest, the blood and heart are pumping away at a furious rate? Welcome to the Sunspot/Solar Flare stage of our process!
On the night of October 28, the date associated with the end of a 16 billion year Galactic cycle, we were having dinner with my sister and her partner when we noticed a fireworks display happening outside their lounge-room window. This wasn’t a few small sparklers being thrown about by neighbourhood kids. It was a major extravaganza in the night sky, similar to the display that happens in this same location every New Year’s Eve. The fireworks were coming from the park where a circus has been set up for a couple of months and I said ‘It must be the last day of the circus.”
Imagine a community of ants hidden under a covering in the corner of a house. They have been told that this corner is the world. Every day the ants go about their business collecting food, securing their shelter and keeping their families warm. Some of the ants are content with their lives, happy to have what they have. Others feel quite frustrated but don’t think they can do much about it, after all there is only so much space they can work with. A few ants have big aspirations for their lives and dream of greater things.
